Hulled Sesame Seeds are used to make Tahini.
|Ingredients||Hulled Sesame Seeds|
Not only are sesame seeds a very good source of manganese and copper, they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. In addition to these important nutrients, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to have a cholesterol–lowering effect in humans, and to prevent high blood pressure and increase vitamin E supplies in animals.
Sesame seeds add a great touch to steamed broccoli that has been sprinkled with lemon juice. Spread tahini (a type of sesame paste) on toasted bread and either drizzle with honey for a sweet treat or combine with miso for a savory snack. Combine toasted sesame seeds with rice vinegar, tamari and crushed garlic and use as a dressing for salads, vegetables and noodles. Cook up healthy sautèed chicken with sesame seeds, tamari, garlic, ginger and your favorite vegetables for a healthy, but quick, Asian–inspired dinner.
